soot under the hood

I dont know if anyone else has this problem or not but i have massive amounts of soot residue under the hood of my truck on the passenger side closer to the firewall. Im almost positive its coming from the turbo but the clamps and everything are all good and tight. But it keeps getting worst and now im getting residue coming out of the hood on that side and getting on the front fender and the outside of the hood. I will try to get pics tomorrow its already dark here just wanted to know if anyone had suggestions

Dont know what your ride is but it could be your right side up-pipe too. They have a bad tendancy to leak right at the turbo pedistal. can you hear it what you drive?

You may have a split down pipe where it clamps to turbo. "Y" pipe may also be cracked at the flex

LOL ya could be your down pipe too i've heard of people doing that and 6L uppipes are way better than 7.3's i would imagine if you start the truck when its cold you could feel where its pushing air before it gets too got to touch.
